Of comebacks and givebacks

There might not be anything more frustrating than seeing a monumental comeback go for naught in the space of a few minutes.

An eight-run sixth inning for the Jays put them back into a game that had begun to disintegrate into a laugher, but the Red Sox lit up Gas Can Towers for three of their own in the bottom of the inning to pretty much dust this one off, as the BoSox would go on to win 13-10.

We probably don't need to pile on Towers at this point, given the fact that the Jays release him from his hermeticaly sealed trunk once every two weeks. He's kind of a non-factor at this point, so to pick on his lousy performance is likely a bit cheap.

Kennedy compounds Jays early woes
We actually thought that Joe Kennedy was a pretty smart signing, so we were thoroughly disappointed to see him drive the Jays directly off a bridge in his first outing. We thought Kennedy was being squeezed a bit, but his short outing (23 pitches, 12 strikes) didn't auger well for the next few weeks.
